For the past four years Team Cotey has taken part in the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's annual Light the Night walk. While we are a small crew, we keep growing in number, and we are proud to fund raise for and support such a wonderful organization. Both of our children walked in their earliest days and we are already looking forward to this year's Light the Night Walk on October 18th in DC. (Please consider joining our team and walking with us, LLS has Light the Night walks all across the US, so we could all walk virtually together!)
This year the National Chapter of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society invited returning teams to a kick off night at the Nationals and we went along! It was an awesome night - there was a threat of thunderstorms, but they stayed to the North of us. In typical fashion our children took fabulous afternoon naps - they slept so long that they scuppered our plans to take the Metro to the ballpark. :)
We arrived just in time to get motivated for this year's walk by hearing from two survivors about the way that involvment from LLS has improved their lives. As team captain I developed a little bit of name envy. The second key note speaker's Light the Night team is called TEAM RELENTLESS LEE.
If you are interested in helping us reach our fundraising goal, we would be honored to have your support. I have included a link to our entire team's page. TEAM COTEY I hope to update all of our individual pages shortly. Expect another post on the three Cotey girls' first major league baseball game.
